Asset protection for offshore pipelines

Reduce the risk of damage to sub-sea infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively

Be proactive against threats to subsea pipelines

Despite regulation of traffic and activities in protection zones around pipeline infrastructures, damage caused by vessels may pose substantial threats to the expected lifetime of pipelines. The environmental aspects and economic consequences can be significant.

The asset protection solution for offshore pipelines is a proactive solution which reduces the risk of damages to the sub-sea pipeline infrastructure. It increases awareness in the offshore pipeline surveillance zones and assets, and it provides the intelligence required to optimize preventive measures at sea level and focus maintenance efforts around the most exposed sections at the seabed.

Vessels causing significant pipeline failures

According to National Research Council (NRC), the most significant pipeline failures derive from damage caused by vessels and their gear. In deeper water, fishing vessels risk tearing nets and other gears on the pipeline features and occasionally causing leaks, while larger vessels may drag their anchors across the pipelines, resulting in bending or cracking.

Focusing monitoring efforts on specific types of vessels is an effective way to minimize the probability of threats and damages to the integrity of subsea pipelines.

The solution for your challenges

Preventive maintenance efforts

Integrated surveillance statistics, based on ship traffic, provide the ability to focus maintenance efforts on the sections of the pipeline with the highest probability of damage. This can significantly reduce the cost related to, for example pigging, since you can easily identify the most exposed sections

Preventive security measures

Traffic pattern analysis, traffic density plots, event type frequencies and locations provide basis for preventive measures at sea level such as placement of e.g. buoys, and virtual AtoNs.

Identify and document perpetrators

All activity in the defined surveillance zones is logged which provides the best possible evidence for correlating the occurrence of damages with identifiable vessels.

We can now identify and document perpetrators which is undeniable proof in insurance lawsuits. This has already resulted in compensations for millions.
